European Parliamentarians propose freezing funds to Russia

The budgetary committee of the European Parliament is considering freezing financial assistance to Russia. The funds allocated to Russia in 2009 equal Euro 60,500,000.

German diplomat Reimer Böge, the committee Chair, asserts that freezing funds to Russia will send a strong signal to the country about its aggressive actions against Georgia. The European Parliament will discuss the proposal in October.
